, there are three major stories we're following. israel seems on the brink of all-out war with hamas. tanks and troops appear to be preparing for a ground war. here, stateside, republicans met at the state house to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. earlier today, general david petraeus said that the cia talking points meant for the susan rice appearance recentlyally contain the information that there was evidence of al qaeda's elements involved in this attack. but it appears as if those talking points were altered by the white house or somebody close to the white house to remove any reference to al qaeda's involvement in the attacks. we have yet to discover who has changed the talking points to make the president look for favorable and mislead you, by falsely labeling the 9/11 attacks over spontaneous mob over the video. petraeus has no idea what was provided to rice or who was the author of the talking points that she used that, he had no idea she was going on the talk shows until the white house announced it one or two days before. now, the looming question is, in this coverup, who did it
in israel is safe. the militants say they're making that point clear by launching rockets at jerusalem in tel aviv. nobody reported hurt in those attacks and the rocket hamas fired at jerusalem actually landed outside the city. it's the first time a palestinian rocket has hit anywhere near jerusalem since 1970. in fact, targeting that city is something of a risk for militants because first of all, hundreds of thousands of palestinians live there. and the area where the rocket landed is just a short distance away from the mosque, the third holiest site in all of islam. meanwhile, israeli air strikes slammed into palestinian territory in gaza for the third straight day and the israeli military called up thousands of reservists, a potential precursor to a ground war. >> we are preparing for any possibility, a ground operation is a possibility, although it hasn't been decided on at this point. >> all this just days after the israeli army reported it had killed a top hamas commander in an air strike. defense officials saying this video shows that take down. and at this hour, neither the isr
of jerusalem, under fire. images like these coming in from israel all day. dramatic pictures of families huddled in concrete pipes for safety. the world watching right now and asking, is the region even closer to the brink of war? we'll talk to abc's global affairs anchor christiane amanpour on the ground in jerusalem. but first, we go right to the gaza strip, where abc's alex marquardt is in the heat of the fight tonight. alex? >> reporter: good evening, diane. tonight, there are 20,000 israeli reservists who have been called up. tanks and troops are amassing along the border, not far from here, preparing for a possible ground invasion. missiles and rockets have been flying back and forth. there has been no letup in this deadly escalation. sirens today in one of the most sacred cities in the world. jerusalem, a target for the first time in this battle. a rocket fell ten miles short. no one was hurt. in tel aviv, israelis ran for cover. in all, more than 550 rockets have now been launched at israel, leaving three dead. the military says a third have been intercepted by israel's famed iro

, israel and hamas are inching closer to a ground war in gaza. the palestinian militant group has fired more than 450 rockets at israel this week. three israelis have been killed in the attacks. in response, the israeli air force has pounded hamas targets killing at least 28 palestinians, including some children. air raid sirens sounded today in major cities, including jerusalem and tel aviv. allen pizzey is there. >> reporter: nearly 100 rockets fired from gaza made it into israel today, sending people shnning for shelters. and for the first time ever, a missile reached the edge of jerusalem. hamgrowing threat from hamas is pushing israel closer to a ground war. israeli troops and armor are massing along the boarder with gaza. 16,000 reservists have already been called up and the cabinet approved plans that could raise that to 75,000. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu warned that his government was prepared to expand its operation into gaza. rrat carries the risk of more casualties on both sides. at least 28 palestinians have been killed so far, half of them civilians, includin

. cc >> eliot: while the election has focused on future hamas and israel continue an escalation of their conflict? we begin with the testimony of general petraeus. the testimony was closed to the public but inside members were shown realtime video of the attack taken by predator drone. petraeus believed immediately it was a terrorist act and opinions were changed by other agencies before being released. i assured that changes were not made for political reasons. he concluded that ambassador's rice intelligence reflected the best intelligence at the time that could be released publicly. >> the problem with what susan rice is not what she had stuck shuck with it. she went beyond that. >> meanwhile, gas are a firing rockets and israel responded by removing 16,000 reswervist troops to the border. today strongly asserted egypt's support, i repeat. he warned that quote, egypt today is different from egypt yesterday and the asias today are different from the asias yesterday. joining me now pj crowley. now a professor at george washington university. thank you for joining us. >> a pleas
attack. israel has launched multiple air strikes since wednesday when it killed hamas's top israeli commander. israel says the attack is in response to missiles fired into israel from gaza. three israelis and 29 palestinians were killed in the back and forth rocket attack. president obama is staying in touch with israeli and egyptian leaders. israeli prime minister netanyahu called the president yesterday to provide an update of the situation. mr. obama also spoke with egyptian president morsi and praised his efforts to ease tensions in the region. the white house says president obama supports israel's right to defend itself but that he wants the situation to be resolved as quickly as possible. >>> right now one of this year's most high profile charities is getting ready to demonstrate here in washington. supporters of the invisible children, the charity that made the viral video kony 2012 are attending a global summit at the washington convention center to press leaders on stopping joseph kony. he is the man said to be responsible for the kidnapping and murder of thousands of child

.n. and the nonaligned movement when it comes to israel and the middle east that said nothing when hamas fired over 500 or 600 missiles at israeli civilians, each missile being a war crime. and when israel finallien hit back by attacking a leader of the militants and started attacking launch sites, suddenly there's a u.n. security council meeting and the nonaligned movement condemns israel. we also learned that despite the ravings of governor romney about obama throwing israel under the bus and the ravings of the republican jewish coalition and other elements of the jewish community, when push comes to shove, the obama administration stood by israel. >> we'll discuss gaza tomorrow. there's been asymmetry in the moral intent has been to go after civilians stated aim of the idf is to avoid civilians. in the actual death toll, we're seeing more civilian lives in gaza dead than israelis. i want to make sure people are aware of that. we'll talk about this much more tomorrow, joy. >> we now know that the beltway sort of means that there was a lack of african-american enthusiasm to re-elect the president was
of western europe, canada, most of our allies, most democracies -- not israel, india and some other countries -- but most countries are due to adhere to protocol i. during the '80s the united states conducted a series of war games, they changed sides and so on and the side that you follow protocol i rules, guess what? they always lost the war game. during the 1990s at amnesty international charged the united nations -- charged the united states air force with serious violations of the laws of war during the bombing campaigns in kosovo and yugoslavia. they brought these charges before a u.n.-sponsored international criminal tribunal for the former yugoslavia which uses protocol i, so amnesty international decried the consistent failure to give effective warning to civilians before bombing. human rights watch complained that the u.s. air force was too concerned with insuring pilot safety. these were american lawyers writing this, complaining about the american air force, too worried about the safety of american service members. so these are the global rules. when people talk about global rules,
semana para ti. >>> atrapado en medio del conflicto armado entre israel y el grupo palestino, un joven vivió una horrible experiencia, porque estaba dando una entrevista, vía skype, cuando una bomba cayó muy cerca de su casa, provocando un ruido que causó el pánico. >>> una pelea entre hermanos terminó de la peor manera, en kansas, el mayor mató a balazos al menor, el pistolero inmediatamente escapó y fue a refugiarse a un área boscosa, se desconoce el motivo de la sangrienta riña familiar. >>> pasando a otras informaciones, una tragedia truncó la vida de una madre y su pequeña hija en texas, el auto donde iban ambas, cayó a las profundidades de un estanque, los policías, bomberos trataron de salvarlas, después de 20 minutos, las encontraron sin vida. >>> una bebita salvó de la muerte, cuando un incendio consumía su hogar, sus padres despertaron y percataron que el fuego destruía su hogar, las 8 personas pudieron escapar gracias a esto. >>> para estar siempre informado, de noticias que comentamos y hemos comentado. >>> síganos en facebook, twitter, y nuestra nueva p
election. he basically said romney is a better friend of israel, please vote for him. not in so many words but if he were jewish and in florida, you got the message. if he saw the clip on youtube of him offered the congratulating the american ambassador to israel over the election, he knows that might have been a mistake at this point and it is hurting him in israel. it would be interesting to see what it does to israeli american relations. i still believe the republican party has document up its faith on the tooth fairy. at the table still believe tax cut increase revenue -- i think they will still believe that tax cuts increase revenue. i do believe there will be some bipartisanship, and better bipartisan mood despite the lingering effects will nonsense. >> very good overview. ok. dr. chavis, still free to wander as dr. jeremy mayor did. >> my comments were set up to observe the election in which i think has been quite historic. and we will be talking about it for years and trying to figure it out. one a fragile coalition of women, african-american, latino, the young, and other minoritie
relationship. in israel there were some day care centers that had a problem. a problem encountered by day care centers around the world. parents coming late to pick up their children. teachers would have to stay with the children until the late arriving parents came. with the help of some economists, they instituted a fine for the late arriving parents. what do you think happened? [laughter] there were more late arrivals. now, why should this be? according to the standard economic reasoning, charging for something should decrease rather than increase the willingness to consume now. so what happened here? well, something similar to what was going on. before when parents came late, they felt guilty. they were imposing inconvenience on the teachers. but now they treated it as a fee for a service. like hiring a babysitter. and you don't feel guilty when you pay money to the babysitter to perform the duty of looking after your child. the attitudes changed. monetary payment change the relationship between the parent and the day care center and crowd out the sense of obligation to show up on time. wh
you now, we see china, israel, others have drones now. every nymphet drums right now. it's going to be a very short time. before we do with the other side of that. we're already dealing with cyberattacks each and every day on our infrastructure, not the kind in the olympic games, but similar kinds. the answer to your question is it can reinforce existing power structures, but cannot also empower nonstate airs far faster than we get reinforced. >> i would say david's concluding point is a fair one except coming back to us. i think that we have kept ourselves still in this environment has been extremely competitive and you reference an area for the united states and that's energy. the united states is number one in natural gas. the united states has been working very aggressively in terms of ensuring that it is energy independent and towards this end, just the other day at "the wall street journal" highlighted the fact that the united states is now really grown exponentially in terms of its own oil production. i think were going to see more of that. precious to different powerbase
to try to find a way that will end the killing in syria not only because it has canings for israel and other countries in indonesia, but because it sits, of course, a terrible negative example to others bad guys in this region and elsewhere who will be encouraged if they can get away with these types of behavior if we don't act. so i think this is a huge challenge that we need to face. and the solution is not a military solution. it's a smart one. >> we have to wrap up soon. to get the conference back on schedule. two more comments here and back there to get them in. >> thank you very much. [inaudible] i'm the australia commissioner in australia. i'm afraid on -- [inaudible] i wanted to make a point after having had a long period of being a diplomatic prak practitioner. particularly in my world and to say that the new normal viewed from outside of the world has some good news, which i just would like to throw in. one is that while this is being happening in the rest of the world, china we know what happened in china. but thailand has sufficiently grown to no longer being a recipien
in the " the new york times"about the back and forth between israel and hamas. in "the washington post." good morning from washington, d.c. on the democrats in line. i voted -- will survive before the bush cuts which were temporary. perhaps this should only be extended 50% instead of 100%. i think the republicans won the house. they both want something. i think they both need to work together and the constituents of both should pay a little more. that is how i feel. host: do you think yesterday both sides expressed a willingness on both parts? caller: i hope they realize the important thing is solving the crisis, not taking care of their particular constituents a lawn. host: let's hear from one more call. this is herman on the republican line. caller: yes, i want to say just because you are on a runaway train for the last 40 years -- we went through a great depression and came through it just fine. republicans and democrats both do not have the ability to solve this problem we are in. they are smart people, do not get me wrong. we need to go over the fiscal cliff for the good of the country.
